Recently, Kevin Costner has vacated his role in Quentin Tarantino‘s forthcoming Western Django Unchained, due to an apparent scheduling conflict. Now, Kurt Russell is reportedly in talks to take over the role.

Russell would play Ace Woody, a henchman to villainous plantation owner Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Also set to star in Django Unchained are Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx in the title role.

Russell previously worked with Tarantino in 2007‘s Death Proof.

Django Unchained is currently targeting a Christmas 2012 release date.
